"Marching Song" (karaoke)

"Marching Song" (sheet music)


In our poverty and toil,

Looking out upon the world,

We can see the gath'ring armies of the Cause;

And we feel ourselves a part

Of the new, resistless pow'r

That shall sweep away oppression and its laws.

 

Tramp, tramp, tramp, you hear us marching;

Millions now are on the way;

And our army ne'er shall pause

Till the right to live is ours

And the sun has risen on a fairer day.

 

In the shops and in the slums,

Working, suff'ring day by day,

We are making wealth for millionaires to hold;

But with joy, we pledge our faith

To the Cause of all who toil

Till the better social order shall unfold.

 

Tramp, tramp, tramp, you hear us marching;

Millions now are on the way;

And our army ne'er shall pause

Till the right to live is ours

And the sun has risen on a fairer day.

 

In the days that are to be,

When the Cause we love has won,

We shall labor for ourselves and for our own;

Each for all and all for each,

And, through many joyful years,

We shall pluck the fruit that comrades brave have sown.

 

Tramp, tramp, tramp, you hear us marching;

Millions now are on the way;

And our army ne'er shall pause

Till the right to live is ours

And the sun has risen on a fairer day.
